    I was expecting the results I had obtained however not the consequences. I am in a sticky situation I obtainted CDEE in maths, English Language, Chemistry and biology in that order. I was not allowed to enrol in my 6th form because the minimum entry requirement is a D for any subject. I am allowed to do English language and Maths but again the minimum subjects you can do in my school are three. I wanted to drop English language but now it doesn't look like I have a choice. I spoke to a science teacher which said they can't say anything until they speak to head of department whom is currently on holiday -_- I told them I wouldn't mind doing at least one subject. With the new system you can't retake at all I'm doing the new As and a level 2015 OCR. With that being said I was told to find some backups I wasn't expecting this and highly unprepared I have called a few colleges and sixth form but with no hope. The science teacher I spoke said there is a high chance of the head of department saying yes for at least biology or chemistry but the wait is too long and I can't wait till September which I can also be rejected. I don't know what to do no schools are picking up or when I do they forward me to some other line which doesn't pick up. I am considering apprenticeship which seems the easier option but none of them appeal to me and I wish I like business or IT however I don't and I'm just worried if I don't even end up going to any school. Sorry for the long post.

    All I can recommend you is to try their phone lines again and again. See if they have any other means of contact - some schools can be contacted over social media like Twitter and Facebook.

    Try emailing the school. They should have some contact details on their websites for you to email!
